Should you want to customize it a bit further, adding a new hood with vents near the windshield increases the total to $17,930 in fiberglass or $19,030 for the carbon fiber version.

NES Console Nintendo Switch Dock
Reddit user IMOKRUOK took an old NES console, gutted it and then used the shell to make a functional Nintendo Switch dock.
